Okay, with Reapercon being relatively soonish, my brain will not stop thinking about ideas and such for Reapercon which isn't a bad thing. A tad annoying but not bad. At Reapercon I picked up these two.

And when I ordered the stuff for Secret Sophie I got him

And when I went to Reaper the other day, I picked him up (Yes, I know I'm lucky to live close enough to pop over there ::P:)

Now that I have them all I can start! So today I went and worked at my computer a bit with my drawing tablet here's what I got so far! This is just testing the ideas. (Please ignore the messiness, lack of detail, and the extra doodles.)

What do y'all think? It'll be quite a bit smaller and much of the extra space in the drawing will be gotten rid of. I think I'll add some spiderwebs and skulls to the Maggotcrown portion, maybe a dog or some blood on the ground in the Duskwarden part. Still thinking and letting it process. Any advice would be appreciated!

Are you designing bases for these Minis?

Backgrounds for dioramas or vignettes for each figure?

Planning cosplay options?

 

...not sure what the goal is.

I see where you are going...  one quadrant for each of the factions.. based as per that factions perceived environment.    I am not sure you can achieve this but,  is there a way to blend the basing so the intersection points are not so stark but merge gently?

If you use a large enough base, you could surely pull this off.

 

Robinh has a point, you need to blend the borders between the sections.

 

And the minis? Are they looking at each other or will they face outwards?

 

My suggestion, let them face outwards.

What could be awesome, there are these little round rotating display cylinders.

That would be great for this. They will rotate and thus every faction will show itself to you.

Planning a diorama with all the faction figures.

I'm sure there is, but right now I'm just throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what'll stick. Also, this isn't a final design just a general approximation to get the idea on paper, before it decides to leave.

They'll be facing outward, could you send me a link for the display cylinders. I'm finding it hard to picture what you're talking about.

 

Great idea! Mind if I steal it and do one for the year Reaper did Pirates?

Go on ahead! I'll be looking forward to seeing it! Edited by Tarsemina

      I recently got my ReaperCon goodies from my convention buddy. Since I caught a cold right before coming home from Kuwait, this mini felt especially relatable to me.
       

       
      I looked over Buglips' and Guindyloo's versions of the mini, and they informed how I went a bit. Guindyloo's eye in particular was something I wanted to try replicating. I think I did an okay job. I should have picked a lighter color of blue, though. The pupil doesn't really stand out from the iris. 
       

       
      My tissue box's lines ended up not being quite as clean as I would've liked. I need to practice my freehand more.

      Hey all! Got this resin fig at ReaperCon 2016 and decided to base him using a Basius basing pad with some swampy/murky/creepy terrain. 
       
      My goal was to emphasize that this disciple is unconcerned with his cleanliness, and is a deadly foe.
       
      I managed to work up a color scheme that speaks to faded Christmas colors which led me into an adventure idea wherein this summoner is bringing a twisted version of Krampus into existence for the holidays

      Hello fine people (and other assorted things) of the Reaper forum!
       
      Continuing in our project of teaming up to show you two different methods to go about painting the same miniature, Buglips and I decided that we would do a WIP thread for Con Crud, Convention Zombie from the 2017 Reapercon swag bag! He's a great little figure, sculpted by Gene Van Horne, that we thought we could have some fun with.
       
      This will be our second shared WIP thread in this series of ours, in case you missed it, check out our first one where we painted Thanis the Bonecaller:
       
      As with that one, I will be covering my usual method of painting for display, and Buglips will be approaching the figure with his own usual "fast-but-decent method." As with the last one, Buglips' method will be much faster than mine will be and you'll get to see where our two styles diverge. We will be sharing our own issues, thoughts and methods with you in the hopes that someone will find such things useful.
       
      So on to the mini!
      Here's my Con Crud, fresh out of his blister:

       
      I prepped him in my usual way, with some diamond files to grind off the mold lines and bit of flash that you can see on his outstretched foot and hand. He has some notable mold lines through his hair and back and down the left (his left) side of his face. I'll show you throughout the process how I'll tackle those.
       
      So here he is after I primed him with Reaper's Brush-On Primer in white, thinned down with some water. As usual, I only did one thin coat so as not to obscure the details on him and I took a couple of additional shots from different angles so you can see some of the mold lines that I'll need to work on a little more down the road.
